Tell us how you think the forum can be improved. We will listen.
Can someone post what all the different thread states mean. Sometimes there is a red star and sometimes the text is moving and so on. I am referring to the icons next to thread titles. Also any other useful user information would be welcome.

Icons with stars added are threads that you have posted on.
Best as I can tell, the text starts scrolling to indicate a hot topic based on a certain amount of posts (20 maybe?).
And you'll notice that when you read a thread the icon changes to black when you go back to the forum page -- it changes back to red when a new post has been added to the thread since you last clicked on it.

"To reach beyond fear and danger we must sharpen and widen our vision. We have to pierce through the deceptions that lull us into a comfortable complacency, to take a straight look down into the depths of our existence, without turning away uneasily or running after distractions." -- Bhikkhu Bodhi

What Tex says about the icons is correct as far as I can tell.
We've also introduced a non-standard "moved" symbol, which is an arrow pointing the right, because the standard "moved" symbol was far too similar to the other ones.
If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)'We should not congratulate someone on the success of their misdeeds, but on the contrary should endeavour to advise him or her to lead a more skilful and wholesome life. If such advice is ignored then we can only give up and let go' - Phra PanyapatipoDharma Wheel (Mahayana / Vajrayana forum)
